I was at Trader Joe’s yesterday to get some lunch, and look what I found: EUROPEAN STYLE YOGURT! Amazing!
I was a little puzzled by the lowfat part, though, since as far as I can tell the main advantage of European style yogurt is that it’s thick and creamy (read: fatty). Some day I have to sit down and write something coherent about yogurt in the different places I’ve lived, because Swedish yogurt (and close-to-yogurt variations) are totally different than what I ate in Austria or Italy. And it’s definitely nothing like the Greek Fage yogurt that I used to love, because now I kind of can’t stand it. Too thick and clumpy!
In conclusion, I have to admit that I didn’t even try the European Style Yogurt because the only flavors that were available were mocha and chocolate, and I’m kind of a plain or vanilla kind of girl. So I cannot comment on the authenticity of the aforementioned yogurt. The regular vanilla yogurt with almonds was quite tasty though.
My BFF from college, Lara, and I are going on a tourist expedition of some sort today. I have until about 2 pm to hang out in DC before I have to head to the New Carrollton commuter station and meet up with my sister, who will take me home. We’re thinking a museum, perhaps… we’ll see!
